We were traveling through Springfield and decided to spend the night. We turned into the Route 66 Rail Haven and loved it immediately. The outside was super clean with an old car in front and vintage gas pumps made to look like they were in an old service station. The real test of course was the room. We opened the... More

In this motel you go back in time. The rooms are in seperate wooden buildings, just like in the old days. Our room was tidy, but small which gave us a cramped idea. There are lots of restaurants etc. within walking distance. And the hotel sports a feature we do not often see: chairs and tables under a roof s... More

From the minute we arrived and saw the vintage hotel office complete with 1930's Gas Pumps we knew we were home. The hotel or rather motel was a flashback in time, capturing the life and times of Route 66 in its glory. The days of this old style motel that you drive up to the door are gone. The grounds...

Loved our stay here! Stayed for 3 nights, very comfortable beds and clean cozy room. The bathroom was small but that was ok, it was very clean. Liked the idea of the outside entrances because it meant we could sit outside on a nice night. The nostalgia of the place is neat, with the old stories and classic cars parked... More

This is an old fashioned, park in front of your room, motor court. The staff is very friendly and the room is clean and comfortable. A refrigerator freezer, microwave, and flat screen tv were nice too.

Hotel was close to campus and a good price for a 1 night stay which was all we needed. The hotel is older and they are definitely going with the Rte 66 theme. The rooms have outside access so you can hear everything going on outside your room. The room was clean but definitely had a musty smell. The built... More

I have stayed at this motel several times over the years and have primarily had positive experiences. I never had any issue repeated. This motel definitely encourages socialization, beginning with chairs stationed outside the room doors to the eating area to the new outdoor pavilion. I can recall only one time a group was a little loud but not so... More

Historical Rt. 66 spot, carefully renovated, maintained, nicely landscaped with lots of local wildlife. Good bed, attentive and responsive staff, tasty breakfast. Great location, centrally located, but not too noisy.
